Well, of course changing the settings might "untie" the lock, because changing the settings causes a replan(this includes adding/detaching units), and thus changes the whole situation. That doesn't mean min aggro will cause units to freeze and do nothing for no reason.
There are "lockups" with no reason, and others have a reason. You provided a savegame with the order aleady "planned". If the base was the cause of the "lock up", then it all makes sense to detach the base, doesn't it?
Try to issue the same order without the Base, as I did, and tell me what you find. This was exactly what I learnt in the exchange I had with simovitch on the mini-AAR thread I pointed you out to and looks like failed to impress you in the slightest.
I agree that these WAD "lockups" should better explained/documented. Here I have become convinced that one needs to put more thought in order to sail around fuel and supply shortages. If the base doesn't have enough fuel, it just won't move forward. If you leave the "Basing" setting on, then the base will try to move in formation with the rest of the Regiment. This might considerably delay deployment, for instance, of the Rear Guard element.
Or perhaps cause other problems which aren't WAD and probably Arjuna will sort out.
Assuming that people want to shout you out and then make some vague, and worse, inaccurate remark about a game quite a few people around here like a lot, will make very unlikely that will put some real effort in order to try to help you out (as both simovitch and me tried to do, with screenshots and savegames).
